"Heroes" Children's Exhibition

DIE VORSTADTKROKODILE, 1977

To coincide with the children's exhibition "Heroes" (Filmhaus, 4th floor), the Deutsche Kinemathek – Museum für Film und Fernsehen is presenting a "hero" film on the last Sunday of every month. The first adaptation of Max von der Grün’s children's book DIE VORSTADTKROKODILE (1977) is showing on July 1. In order to join the "Suburban Crocodile Club", you have to pass a dangerous test of nerves, which is not easy for the paraplegic Kurt. Together, the club members manage to uncover a crime. It’s a very different story for the heroic Harry Potter, who follows the call to Hogwarts to attend wizard school and finds himself standing on platform 9 ¾ for the first time. In HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE (July 29), he gets to know the secrets of the magic school. The exciting documentary film program JUNGE HELDEN (August 26) is about everyday heroes and is presented by doxs, the Duisberg Documentary Film Festival for Children and Young People. Free entry with the "Superhero Pass", which can be obtained at the exhibition.
